Snider Homes does not pay his suppliers

DISHONEST COMPANY DO NOT HIRE BE AWARE

We extended credit to Sandy of Snider Homes on a 30 day payment term. Its been almost a year now and after may attempts to collect he still has not paid his invoice. Snider homes takes materials from small business, then lines his pockets with the profits and does not pay his suppliers. Through research and word of mouth, it has become clear that he is doing this throughout the industry. He has claimed to be ill and unable to pay his bills but he is promoting his work on various web sites and home shows. Be aware of this company and person.

Not sure who this post is from, but this note is being written on behalf of Sandy Snider who unfortunately did indeed fall ill and as a result became unable to carry on his business affairs. This is a sad ending to a long chapter of a wonderful company that helped thousands of happy customers and supported hundreds of worthy trades and suppliers. There were some short term losses in the aftermath of the sudden health issues and subsequent absence of Sandy from the business, but please note that solutions were eventually put in place to the best of the ability of those helping out, but indeed Snider Homes is no longer open for business. Thank you to all of the loyal customers, trades and suppliers for all of the years of service and patronage. Best of luck to everyone as they move forward in their businesses, projects and careers.

Worst Service of ALL

My dad met Sandy at home show last year. We hired him to do house renovation and extension in August 2016. When we met him, he told us he can do whatever we want him to do, it's just a matter of $$$. And he can start the work as early as April 2017. We paid him in full for Architect, Engineering and Submission for building permit. Up until now (March 2017), we still not getting the heat loss calculation from his Engineer. We had been asking his progression since October 2016, his answer was always "busy". The work he completed so far was just the Architect drawing. He still has the Engineering calculation and building permit submission not done. He has no sense of time. Not keeping his promise, dragging us month by month. How can a heat loss calculation take 5 months to complete? Now we are requesting $$$ (incomplete part) back from him . He is not answering my calls or reply my emails. We are going to seek legal advice for this.

A note to these clients and to the public reading this information on behalf of Snider Homes. Unfortunately, the company's owner/operator, Sandy Snider, became ill last year and this took a serious toll on his business. In the end, he became unable to carry on work due to his condition. The clients were eventually notified of the situation on behalf of Sandy and sent an express apology for the inconvenience this has caused. Furthermore, this matter was resolved for the clients on Sandy's behalf. Snider Homes thanks all of its clients for their patronage over nearly 98 years of service. Although this is a sad and unforeseen ending to one long chapter, Snider Homes wishes the very best to everyone reading this. For those who are looking to have work completed in their homes, we trust you will find another competent contractor through HomeStars, as we pass the torch along and wish the best of luck and success to all the contractors on this website.

Kitchen Renovation

I have given excellent reviews for two other companies on this site but in all of my dealings with contractors including building a custom home 20 years ago, I have never experienced a contractor who was so dishonorable.
My husband and I met Sandy at the Aurora Home Show and were given a $1000 certificate to be deducted from any contract for $5000 or over. He refuses to honor this after we waited 9 months for the kitchen reno to be completed because of delays caused by him.
The first thing he announced to get us to sign a contract for a
kitchen renovation was that he could match the existing oak arch cathedral style cabinetry. This meant that we would only have to replace a few cabinets. He insisted on a $5000 deposit and then we didn't hear from him for over a month until we phoned to learn that he could not match our cabinets and he then tried to up-sell us all new kitchen cabinets. He claimed he had a team of people working for 2 weeks to find a company that could copy our cabinet design with no success. It took me 3 minutes on the internet to find a
company in Mississauga that makes this style of cabinets in matching oak. The number of times we had problems with this
contractor are too numerous to detail here. In the end, we were not
reimbursed for 3 cabinet doors, all of the new door handles and the pantry door that was supposed to be replaced was left untouched.
Sandy also will not honor our $1000 home show certificate. We now wish we had never signed a contract with Snider Homes.

Front porch and parking pad

I am thrilled with the transformation of my front porch and parking pad. The Snider team were great to work with --- their workmanship is high quality, they respond in a timely manner, communicate appropriately throughout the project, they clean up after themselves, they are pleasant and friendly --- and they go out of their way to get improved results wherever possible. I would be pleased to recommend them to anyone.

Main Floor reno

The Sniders completed our main floor Reno about four years ago. To this day we continue to be amazed with what we have.
However this review is about the work they did - which was awesome - it is about their follow-up service. In the four years since they completed their work we have had a couple of small issues with our kitchen cupboards. A quick email to Zack or Sandy and a service call is arranged. No charge.
Bottom line - great work and outstanding service. They stand behind their work.
